If you want to get a good idea of how Dante handles the minions of hell in EA's Dante's Inferno, you'll need a montage - a Dante combat montage.
Behold Dante's lightning-fast moves, looking much better in this video than they did in the demo I played on the Xbox 360. As I was watching this, a friend of mine looked over my shoulder and asked me what game it was. When I told her "Dante's Inferno," she replied, "Oh yeah, my favorite part of the poem was when Dante hit the giant X button." While I'm over the whole bastardization of the original work thing by now, but it's always good to get a fresh perspective.
